This was a 2nd round impact. I also reached out to 2260 with a .338, but I was more impressed with my creedmoor. 180 feet of drop!!!

In real world terms, how much damage does a bullet do at that range? Energy must be next to nothing

Impressive, Ryan. Out of curiosity, what did you use to determine range?

about the energy as a 32acp at point blank range...... enough to make your day suck hard if you got hit

It has a tad more energy than a 124gr FMJ at the muzzle from a 9mm It was about 390 ftlbs

Nice shooting. That's flat out getting it. I was just happy to take my 308 to 1K.

Way outside trans-sonic! Well done, love a trued Kestrel.

180' of hold over, not drop. The Kestrel shows maximum ordinate, you have to dig, but it's in there.

It's such a small mark on the rock, it was hard to see on video, but I hit a couple of times w/ the same result. The puff of rock dust that goes flying is about the easiest thing to see.

Cool, but I've watched the video at least 5 times and can't see the impact point.

Can you see the dust off the rock? I hit the rock twice, only once in the video. The spotter was using a 50x Swaro STR. It was much easier to see though the spotter.
